This cut, located at the highest point on State Hwy 108 between Mindoro and West Salem, is 74 feet deep and 25 feet wide. It was hand-hewn out of hard rock in 1907. All work was completed with horse-drawn equipment & hand tools. As far as known, it is the largest hand-hewn cut in the nation.
The mural is located at Farmington Town Hall on southbound State Road 108, at its intersection with Fulton Street / County Highway D, at or near N8309 State Road 108, Mindoro, Wisconsin 54644.
